look ahead to saturday’s trip to darlington
darlington mowden park vs rosslyn park, SATURDAY 15th october, KO 3PM
Park are faced with their longest away trip of the season this weekend as they travel to take on Darlington Mowden Park up in Darlington.
Park will head into the fixture as favourites, sitting 2nd in the league table (only behind Rams on points difference) and having picked up maximum points in each of the first 5 games of the season. DMP are currently occupying the 8th spot. After picking up wins against Chinnor and Hull to start the season, they are now coming off three losses on the bounce which saw them lose by a single point at home against both Bishop’s Stortford and Cambridge before being throughly beaten by Rams.
Since DMP’s promotion to National 1 in the 2014/15 season, Park have generally fared better in this fixture having won 10 of the 14 matchups in that time. You have to go back to January 2019 to find the last time DMP won against Park as over the last two seasons Park have twice been able to do the double over their opponents from the Northeast. However, 3 of DMP’s 4 wins against Park have come at home and they will be desperate to put a stop to their current losing streak, so Park should be, and will be, wary of the strength of the challenge they are likely to face at The Arena on Saturday.
Both teams should be well-rested and well-prepared following the weekend off for what promises to be an exciting contest.
Team news will be announced at 12PM. Match details can be found at www.mowdenpark.com
